Subsite For the Election?

election08.metafilter.com ?

I'm a long time member of this site and have always been very vocally against setting up stuff like news.metafilter.com, politics.metafilter.com, etc.

However now I'm changing my tune. I feel that the community has grown to the point where there are enough interested and interesting people to make a subsite just for election stuff entertaining, enriching, and enlightening.

Very little of what happens during the campaign will be "best of the web" but I still want to hear what the intelligent, involved people around here think about the daily political news. I have come to rely on this site as a way of gauging opinions of people I trust, and this would be a way to keep that going during the election. Unlike a general politics or news filter, this would be timed and as of nov 4th, would cease to exist, so there would no long term damage to the Blue.

I know there are always calls for subsites, and they are usually shot down; I know mathowie is not that into them, but perhaps in this one case this is a chance to enrich the community, not detract from it?

Thoughts?

Heh, reviewing my own posting history I asked for a news and politics subsite back in 2001. But, I swear that SINCE THEN I've been against topic-specific subsites. I promise.

I think it quickly runs into the problem of setting a very low bar for what gets posted and would turn into a partisan corner of the site where people post absolutely everything. I don't really want to run or moderate a daily kos style dumping ground and think it'd be bad for the site overall.

I hope we can limit ourselves to maybe 1 election post every few days instead of several a day and we'll continue to delete minor election news stories as they pop up here and hopefully just stick with the major turning points.

However now I'm changing my tune.

To bad this isn't a democracy.

Also, TPM's election central sub site has fairly decent comment system now. The quality of the discussion isn't as great as it is on metafilter, but it's not terrible. Certainly not DKos levels. here is their comment section talking about the end of the debate that just happened. There are ... seven threads on the site just about that debate. So you can really fill up on all the commentary you could possibly want.

I know it's not the same, but it's not too bad. I do like having one thread or so a week here. I think too much gets really old, and frankly I'm getting sick of this primary :P

This is ultimately the only answer that matters, and the best one. I do think though on the other point, the question of if MeFi could do a politics site well, I think it could, as long as the proper tone was set early. I think it could self-police with the best of them.

The quality of the membership is what I value most about this site, it would be cool to get more political commentary from the interesting minds here, but I can also see how instead of being complimentary, like AskMe, it could end up an unneeded distraction.

I think Matt should open an election subsite, with the caveat that if you post to it you will never be allowed to make another post *ever* to the main site.

Just post supplementals to current ObamaFilter/ClintonFilter/McCainFilter FPPs as appropriate. When those get unwieldly, the admins can close them after 500 or so comments, and then the party can be carried over to the next interminable funfest.

Or, y'know.

I understand the reservations about this idea - it stands a chance of becoming a huge, festering distraction and would likely attract the oiliest of astroturfers on a daily basis. Only religious threads go sour faster than political threads, and I wonder if elections.metafilter.com would need a metatalk.elections.metafilter.com of its own.

Nonetheless, I'm all for this idea. Metafilter is my absolute favorite place for online discussion - this is a fascinating election, and I'd love the opportunity to talk it over with Mefite politics addicts on a regular basis. There's a lot of ways it could go wrong, but it could be something really special if it goes right. And with such a site in place, the blue would never be marred with a political thread.

Metafilter's executive branch has spoken on the matter, of course, so no big deal.

This is a very Ameri-centric idea and so I don't see how or why it could or should fit into Metafilter. The non-emotionally-laden equivalent would be if we had a cat subsite, and can you imagine that sh*t?!?!

*I do realize that for many, cats are a very polarizing topic, rife with emotional baggage and warm fuzzies, but it was the most "neutral" thing I could think of.
posted by iamkimiam at 11:26 PM on February 21, 2008


Yeah see, I'd totally back a PolMe subsite that had strict entry and heavy attack moderation, sometimes the political discussion here is effing sublime. Otherwise I think it would get to be like those fucking, yes I said it, fucking, comment sections that CNN and MSNBC have on their little news blurbs that end up with people sexually abusing exclamation points and yelling at one another, where thoughtful comments are like one in thirty, and god-damned methed-out, rabid, chipmunks make much more sense and are more thoughtful.

I'd even shell out an extra (or actual my first $5, shhh) for such a maintained site.

I've been wondering what it is about the Obama (et al) minutiae I find so off-putting. I realise the bulk of the user base here is in the US, so it shouldn't be surprising that some early campaign incident attracts more debate than something far more significant, like say the recent Pakistani elections. But it does leave me somewhat dismayed. And I much prefer feeling mayed, if it's all the same to everyone else.

Oh, man. I've been wanting obama.metafilter.com so badly of late, to give the newly-converted somewhere to testify about their political messiah out of my earshot. Don't get me wrong: I like the guy—he's my candidate—and some very crazy weird stuff would have to transpire for me not to vote for him. Seriously, I am using a Barack Obama ringtone and wallpaper on my phone at the moment, albeit not without a sense of irony , so you've got my vote sewn up. But please, please, please, ye zeal-filled Obamites, give that shit a rest. I'm fired up already, don't hype it so much that it wraps back around and turns into apathy.

I don't expect to get an election subsite out of this—if it were to be, planning should've started a year ago—but I was going to suggest maybe adding a notice to the blue's New Post form for the next six months, asking people to think thrice before posting electionfilter stuff. AskMe did something similar last winter re: gift questions, didn't it? It'd be a figleaf, at least, but it's going to be a loooong time until November and every bit helps.

Maybe a sidebar link to whatever the most recent 'turning point' election thread is? No subsite or anything, but it keeps the general election talk limited to one thread.

Or you could set up a system for a weekly/biweekly General Election 08 Post. Such a post would show up on Monday mornings and all other election stuffs would be deleted as per normal.

I am interested in reading and participating in discussion about the American election in exactly one place on the internet: Metafilter.

And that's just it. I *do* want to obsess over all the minutiae of this election with all the very bright political analysis Metafilter consistently musters.

I think tkolar's joke about creating a politics subsite that locks you out of posting anywhere else is actually very close to the mark for a workable version of this - Matt could make a ton of money off of a politics.metafilter.com that had a separate user database from the main site and kept the $5 entry fee. Big shot of site revenue from a whole new round of signups, siphons off the ZOMG ELECTION from the main site, and provides an outlet for those of us who really really want to discuss the small stuff. Oh, and because it's interest-specific you can do better-targeted advertising, and if it's really obsessive there'll be a huge number of hits.

There's a market for it, money to be made, and it improves the quality of the main site - that seems like a solid win. If moderation's a concern, have it written somewhere extremely visible in giant bold letters that this specific subsite is lightly moderated, but all moderation for this specific subsite is done in wrath-of-God mode (Asshole? Banned.).

Full disclosure: I used to want exactly the same thing, until I realized (for myself) that the political debates created very little light, riled up too many people, and ultimately created less "community" and more polarity. Of course, it helps that I stay out of most political debate anymore, since it's almost never about the issues, IMHO.

Like many people in this thread, I'd like an election/politics subsite. I'm just suggesting a way Matt could do it that might yield a good return-on-investment (of time, on his part).

Considering that a sizable fraction (9 for, 12 against as of this comment) of the people above indicated that they would like this, there may exist a market awaiting a solution. My comment about not having codebase or DNS records was my way of saying only Matt can provide a solutuion. The only suggestion I offered was a method that might make sufficient money to offset the trouble.

I can feel for people who want things like this, I really can, but the reasoning behind is always the same, at least the reasoning people admit to:

"I really want to know what the special smart and lovely mefites have to say about every minor thing relating to [topic x]."

That's admirable. It is. But here's the thing. All of those other sites that you and I know already exist to talk about precisely this sort of thing? The ones that we're all imagining don't have our special brand of super-smart generally awesome members? They all have mefites. In fact, they're where mefites get the talking points they use in metafilter threads. Daily KOS is lousy with mefites. I bet you could even find a couple over at LGF. I promise you, you'll get all the mefite discussion you could possibly want on this election at any of the established political community discussion blogs that are out there. The sad truth is that "I want to know what mefites think about every minor development regarding [thing y]" is simply not enough reason for something like this.

I'm pretty calm right now...though if you could use a hug, I'm sure that could be arranged. My point was that your suggestion only considers monetary gains as weighed against the work needed to establish this subsite. I understand perfectly what you're asking for, and I've certainly thought in the past that it would be a good idea. But having been here a while, like yourself, I'm understanding that the negative affects that such a site would have far outweigh the benefits. Moreover, you're asking Matt to do all the work, just for your pipedream. Seems a bit selfish to me.

The (long running!) discussion on this issue seems to have shifted. In the past is was mostly the haters (like me) who called for a politics site to keep that stuff off the blue. But a big chunk of the pro-politicsfilter posters here seem to want a place where they can have more political discussion without the haters (like me) always flagging their threads and prattling on about bestoftheweb and otherwise being obnoxious bores. Like me.

And while I'm on the topic, Matt profiting is good for Metafilter's overall continued excellence.

If we have to have politics on MeFi, let's not puke up the same bread and circuses gruel that Fox, CNN, and all the rest of those loathsome anti-everything-good hacks are pushing down the throats of the public.

If we have to have politics on MeFi, let's choose stuff that actually informs or makes a difference in the world.
